Barwa ciemnego bursztynu, piwo klarowne, z ładną pianą. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, przepijają się nuty ciemnego pieczywa i karmelu. W smaku nic się nie dzieje, wodnisty, do zapomnienia.

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, nuts, malt syrup, caramel), with a light note of sherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A pretty generic semi-sweet malty beer. A few days past the best-by date (but best-by dates are useless if you don’t know when it was bottled, as brewers routinely wildly overestimate a beer’s longevity...this could be a year old for all I know), so maybe it’s a little better when fresher, but it’s not showing much promise as-is.

Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, with plenty of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and bread. Not as sweet as the aroma indicated. Disappointing.

darbeer75 (322) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Aroma: malty with sickly sweet smell laced with some apple juice; Appearance: dark amber with clear pour with thin, white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: also extremely sweet and malty, but not as bad as others I’ve had; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: taste is better than smell and it’s not as sweet as you might expect. But wouldn’t buy again.

Solidny koźlak. Całkiem słodki, leciutko wodnisty, odpowiednio nasycony, subtelnie kwaskowaty, bursztynowy i po prostu smaczny.

Koncerniak, który pozuje na lepsze piwo, niż jest. Poszła za tym niezła kampania marketingowa, ale chyba jednak piwo przeszacowane. Nijaki, wodny smak, nie ma tego charakterystycznego pazura charakterystycznego dla bocków. Generalnie chyba czegoś temu piwu brakuje.

Puszka 500ml. Kolor ciemnobursztynowy z czerwonym refleksem. Piana srednia, zoltawa szybko opadajaca. W zapachu dominuja slodkie nuty palonych slodow ciastka szczatkowy karmel. W smaku dosc alkoholowe z wyraznym slodowo karmelowym motywem.suszone owoce. rodzynki .Raczej nic wielkiego...

Quick3Beers (781) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours a nice copper from a bottle, thin white head with a bit of loose lacing. Caramelly and big malt aroma. Peppery spicy flavor with some brown sugar sweetness. A little thin. Good beer.
